Dear Norma and family, I learned of the doctor's passing today from Dr. Katz. Jimmy and I are so sorry for your loss. He was a great doctor and a caring gentleman. He always got a kick out of it when I would call him "Dr. Pain" when I would get my cortizone shots in the heel. He was like a second father to me. He was our doctor for twenty four years. He will be sadly missed. Love to you Norma. Sincerely, Joan and Jimmy Hennessy, Weymouth, MA

Dear Norma,

It is difficult to believe that 50 years have passed since I was in your living room in Quincy taking a picture of your daughter, Michele.

I knew Bob as a physician who was as devoted to his family as he was to his patients. He could not have done more.

Marjorie and I were so sorry to hear of your loss.
